May 18, 2024 – Plein Air at Brightwood Park

On Saturday, May 18, 2024, the Westfield Art Association hosted the third annual plein air event in conjunction with the Friends of Brightwood Park. Nine painters enjoyed the park and got lucky with the weather (not too hot and the rain held off) and painted for three hours. Sharon Reed from South Avenue Arts was the judge and awarded first, second, and third place prizes. Congratulations to Alexandra Loop (1st place), Tom Kanitra (2nd place), and Lisia Zheng (3rd place) on your awards and congratulations to all the painters who participated and produced great pieces of art. The painters were Sandy Wygledowski, Gina Ferrer, Srinandhan Narasimhan, Ava Luzzi, Jean Rosen, and Darrin Owens, in addition to Alex, Tom and Lisia.

April 1, 2024 to May 12, 2024 – Annual Scholarship Sale

Each year the Westfield Art Association artists donate works of art for sale: proceeds from the sale fund a scholarship that we give to a graduating Westfield High School senior who intends to pursue art in college. The recipient is selected by the art director of Westfield High School.

The 2024 scholarship art sale has no specific theme, but all works are 5″ x 7″ unframed. It makes a wonderful Mother’s Day gift! All pieces are for sale at $60. If you are interested in buying a piece, please send $60 to WAA to westfieldartassociation@gmail.com, in the ‘note’ are indicate which artwork by which artist you would like to purchase. We will get your piece to you as soon as possible.

The pieces will also be on display in person at South Avenue Arts, located at 221 South Avenue in Garwood, starting on April 15, 2024.

If you are an artist and would like to donate a 5 by 7 work of art, we will continue to accept them, and will happily add them to the fundraiser.

Thank you for helping us raise funds for the scholarship!
